U.S. Masters Swimming
We are very flexible masters swim program with coached workout four days a week for swimmers of all levels, so no matter your ability you will fit in. We have swimmers who have never really swum before to members who swam in age groups when they were younger. We do swim drills to help everyone better their strokes, regardless of ability. We have a few USMS competitive swimmers as well as triathletes but most of us swim for fun and fitness. If you don’t want to partake in the coached workout we can usually accommodate lap swimming. Our goal is to get you in the pool.
|Time: 4:45 am - 6:00 am and Sat as the schedule permits
We know some interested adults would like evening swim times. We will continue to negotiate for expanded hours as we grow.
